>> john fugelsang is the greatest thing ever in the history of the world. >> nope, nope nope nope. >> here is the thing, yeah jesus of course would support sane gun control. jesus about doing more with your life than putting in 30 rounds so you would not have to reload during gun massacre. our gun-loving friends would try to use this one passage from luke to say that jesus actually supported guns and it's hilarious because there were no guns in jesus's time. and jesus said when i sent you out did you lack anything? nothing they said. and they are saying that that is proof that jesus said go out and buy a gun because he said sell

6:37 am
huge problem for our society, and is undermining our constitution. so we said we have to step up. we have got a lot on our plate, but this is one issue we need to speak up about so we're doing it. >> stephanie: absolutely. and sister it is interesting -- i don't know which statistic sounds worse, but i think one of the parents at sandy hook were saying that 85% of the children that were killed in the world are killed here. >> oh, my glory, i hadn't heard that one. oh, my glory. >> stephanie: yes. >> i did get to be at the president's unveiling of this program, and when he spoke of the one child grace whose picture he keeps in his private study, i thought oh my heavens that's it. when we have a specific person who is lost to all of us whose gifts are lost to all of us

because of the senseless violence. >> stephanie: that's right. when you see the pictures -- the parents of -- rachel madoux did an interview of one of the parents and they said their duty as parents will never end and they feel it is their responsibility to talk about this. >> absolutely. my sister died of hodgkin's disease when she was 20, and here i am all these years later, and there is still a hole in my life that was left but we knew it was coming and so have somebody so suddenly and senselessly taking from our family families, i can't even imagine how hard that would be.

i'm in god's special club so i want what i want when i want it. christian values are matthew 25 are you taking care of the sick, the pour, and those in prison and are you not starting the violence. and for me i'm all for government based on christian violence if you go what people talk about and not what people think. jesus never mentioned how the poor are wealthy, and we need tax cuts for the wealthiest nazarenes. >> yeah. >> stephanie: sister you are used to a lot of people in the. party claiming guns are their own. he said guns are absolutely part of god's plan. what do you think about that? [ laughter ] >> well i don't see it in the bible, but this is one of the
6:41 am
real challenges we're facing is this gun ownership comes out -- aside from the legitimate sports use of guns, and that sort of thing -- and i grew up in los angeles so i'm not a hunter person. it just doesn't happen for us there, but the -- but what i did realize is that so much of this hoarding of guns come out of a fear-based perspective. >> uh-huh. >> and so much of the conservative rhetoric comes out of fear and pull up the drawbridges, take of myself, be isolated, and so me that's the an -- antishist. >> what is your feeling about
6:42 am
this republican party? >> you know how when something gets really out of balance, it's because there is not enough of a countervailing push that we can find a way through, and it's like no one has told them no stop it, this is wrong. >> stephanie: right. >> and they need to hear it from their own party, because if i say it well we don't do partisan work, we're more identified with progressive political values. but republicans need to reclaim their party. >> stephanie: we have reverend jim wallace on all the time. >> absolutely. >> stephanie: and you just said -- he is considered by fox news, oh this crazy liberal --
6:43 am
>> stephanie: and how is that considered progressive? i don't get it. >> you start with the gospel not with politics. if you start with politics you trim and shape everything to fit into your world view but when you start with the gospel, then you run into all kinds of challenges that open up the world as opposed to closing it down. >> stephanie: yeah. >> and we're not too good at doing that. >> stephanie: they always say republicans try to make it about guns god and gays. >> right. >> stephanie: and paul ryan budget so resinated. you know, a budget is a moral document, and look at in the midst of this debate sister. we have people consist antly
6:44 am
talking about wanting to strip money from mental health and they say it's all about mental health. >> i know. and the horrifying thing is us not being able to get any data about mental health. the nra and the gun manufacturers have slipped into a bunch of different bills all of the prohibitions against just basically gathering data. because they know data is power to undercut their sales or their control, and i think we as a nation, who value education, who value understanding situations who say we want to change this dynamic, the very first thing we want to start with is gathering data. >> stephanie: right. it doesn't take a rocket scientist so know that they don't want us to study that because it will prove our point.
6:45 am
>> that's right. the first years in this man's senate was when they were lobbying against car safety. and when the data was gathered the nation said oh my glory, we can make safer cars than this. >> stephanie: yeah we used to scream about you can't make me wear a seat belt and it's yeah well, we can because you are killing people. it is the same sort of thing isn't it? >> exactly. >> stephanie: sister it's such an honor and a pleasure. >> i'm glad it worked out. >> stephanie: thank you so much, and continue your great work. >> we'll keep at it.

>> stephanie: yeah, and he said -- king dismissed the president's proposals as feel-good proposals that don't work. and far from being open to background checks they would alarm wherever states try to restore this loophole. many states allow violent felons to petition for firearms. over 90% of the country agree on this gun violence prevention measure. >> yeah, again, we are not the nra management. we are the majority. >> stephanie: yes, thank you. let's go to carol in pennsylvania. you are on with john. >> hi how are you? >> stephanie: good go ahead. >> caller: i like to reference the stockman -- [overlapping

then people should have to stand -- they should have to stand and debate. one it takes time and energy so it's not a freebee the way it is now to interrupt the function of the senate and second you are before the american people your colleagues and you have to make your case, and the public can weigh in on whether you are a hero or a bum. >> stephanie: there you go. you have seen the latest polls that congress is a little more popular that chlamydia, and a little less popular that ebole la. >> yeah. it is a situation that has been with us for six years, and lyndon b. johnson in six years

8:34 am
and over we're probably not going to be able to get any of this gun stuff done. but this is part of the reason right? >> it is part of the reason. why are we talking about reducing food stamps and hunger programs at a time when we can't even close a loophole for a oil company. well, it's a filibuster. dream act, why couldn't we do it? filibuster. and we had 59 votes to close debate, and we needed 6 0. and when we had that group that said we want more debate no one would go to the floor and defend secrecy. if they had to defend their position, we would have gotten the 60th vote. >> stephanie: senator merkley, that's exactly right.

8:36 am
house is doing nothing, then it is kind of like throw up your hands and do nothing. >> stephanie: yeah exactly. senator merkley for those just tuning in and don't quite understand even what filibuster means. i know a lot of progressive groups came out against the mccain levin version. what is the difference between theirs and yours. >> mccain levin doesn't get rid of the filibuster unless you trade it off with amendments. it does not provide any form of talking filibuster. it does not say -- they actually have to stand and make their case, so it leaves the key tool utilized by the minority and utilized by the democrats before the republicans, this key tool of killing things without taking any responsibility for it, saving any energy for it giving any opportunity for the american people to see who is actually opposing it and paralyzing it,
8:37 am
so that's the key problem. and the reason they didn't include it is mitch mcconnell will never agree to get rid of his main tool for paralyzing the senate. so they basically punted on the heart of this and that's why that package is -- is very disappointing, that -- that the -- that has been in conversation between those groups. >> stephanie: senator so when -- is there a time frame. is yours coming up for a vote? or how does this progress? >> the way it will mark is majority leader reid will convene a caucus and present his vision of what he wants to see happen, and we'll debate it and argue over it and maybe he'll modify his package, maybe we won't. and then we'll go forward. he'll have to have 51 votes for his package, i'm sure he will have those voteds, and we'll have them for a robust package
